Interesting nugget. The Yankees have just acquired an infielder from the Houston Astros. His name is Gregorio Petit. This comes from someone called Jose de Jesus Ortiz... or something:
The Astros will get a player to be named or cash from the Yankees for Gregorio Petit, who had been reassigned to minor league camp earlier.He's got that blue circle with the white check, so he must be important. I apologize if the name doesn't ring a bell. I checked with other sources too. CBS Houston has it as well as Hardball Talk. I actually thought it was an April Fools joke. Anyway, here's CBS:
— Jose de Jesus Ortiz (@OrtizKicks) April 2, 2015
"With rosters getting finalized, the Astros traded Gregorio Petit to the Yankees on Wednesday night.
In return, Houston will receive a player to be named later or cash considerations.
Last season, Petit played in 37 games with the Astros after spending most of the year at Triple-A. In that time, the infielder hit .278 with 14 runs, two homers, and nine RBI."
There you have it.
